In an extremely important case that we have followed closely over the past year, the New Jersey Supreme Court recently confirmed that the attorney-client privilege protects an employee's e-mails sent to her attorney through her private Yahoo account while accessing her work computer. ? Stengart v. Loving Care Agency, Inc. (A-16-09)(March 30, 2010). We first reported on this case in March 2009, when the trial judge found in favor of the employer by holding that the employee's e-mails to her attorney… [read post]

On February 3, 2014, the government introduced a bill into the Knesset that would grant the police the authority to prevent access to certain Internet gambling websites. [1] This issue has a rather tangled history in the legislative and judicial system. First, the bill follows at least four different private bills, all of which attempted to grant such authority to the police, and all of which failed in the Knesset for one reason or another. After these bills failed, the police attempted to assert… [read post]

Very interesting post from our friends over at Hubspot explaining what blogging can do for your business. I am an analytical person and always enjoy some empirical data to back up an argument. All too often, I think that blogging is pushed onto the legal community as something that needs to be done, but lawyers without a lot of online marketing experience don't understand why. Here are some numbers from Hubspot's study to convince you why your firm needs to be actively involved with blogging: A… [read post]

As eleições 2010 mostraram a imaturidade do brasileiro no uso da internet. A rede mundial de computadores foi utilizada muito mais de forma negativa do que na apresentação de propostas e apoio aos candidatos. Durante a campanha eleitoral, a internet foi dedicada a disputa ideológica, troca de acusações e disseminação de boatos dos candidatos a Presidência. O pleito para segundo turno está próximo e uma modalidade de boca-de-urna com certeza se fará presente até o… [read post]

The Texas Attorney General has been investigating whether Google places its own products over competitors in violation of anti-trust rules. The Texas AG had not filed suit yet and technically still has not filed an anti-trust suit. Instead, we learned this week that the Texas Attorney General sued to force Google to turn over documents related to the probe. Google claims the documents should not be turned over because of the attorney-client privilege. Spinsters will claim Google must have something… [read post]

I've run into quite a few lawyers recently asking for advice about getting an online video produced and up on their site. They want to know the benefits of video and what they can expect with the investment. I want to share what, in my humble opinion, you can expect an online video will do for your website. What Online Video Can Do: 1. Increase Conversion: A professionally produced video may help with conversion on your site. If the video is informative, well-done, and includes calls to action, it… [read post]

Yes, this is really what the Internet used to look like. Since its quaint beginnings as ARPANET, the Internet has blossomed into an unfathomably vast network, a thing which has almost completely redefined the way we get our news, communicate with others, and, yes, share silly pictures of cats. For a system so gigantic, there are relatively few laws governing Internet access. But that could change after a United Nations official found that the Internet is a basic human right. Frank La Rue, a… [read post]

In recent weeks, SoundExchange has begun to send letters to broadcasters who are streaming their signals on the Internet without paying their SoundExchange royalties.  Despite all of the publicity about Internet radio royalties and the controversy about the rates for those royalties, there still seem to be webcasters unfamiliar with their obligations to SoundExchange.  As we have written many times, SoundExchange collects royalties for the public performance of the "sound recording", a song as… [read post]

Hey you! by QuinnDombrowski from Flickr Grrr . . . It seems like every time I call the Copyright Office with a question about blog copyrights, I have to change my stance on how and whether anyone should register their blog’s content. Mind you, when I wrote the Legal Side of Blogging last year, my research and ideas were approved by my cyberspace law professor and another internet/copyright attorney. We all got it wrong. I used to think that bloggers should register their new content every… [read post]

Cholla Trail Landmark – Camelback Mountain by Dru Bloomfield – At Home in Scottsdale Last week Pete Kosednar was hiking on Camelback Mountain when he saw a woman on the trail who didn’t have her dog on a leash. He turned on his video camera and asked her is she knew that her dog was supposed to be leashed. She didn’t appreciate being filmed and reacted by swearing at him and hitting him. Check out the video for yourself. Was Pete Kosednar wrong to film this woman? No! She… [read post]

Mushroom? by Oslo in the Summertime from Flickr I’m a member of a Facebook group for people to discuss and share instances where other people use their work. Most of the members are nature photographers who do gorgeous work. Most of them have no desire to sue people who steal their work, but they would like to be compensated. And some of them are getting pissed when they find that someone has stolen their work and have started sending bills to people who use their work without permission. This… [read post]

Many Webcasters who have elected the the royalty rates set by many of the settlement agreements entered into pursuant to the Webcasters Settlement Act must file an election notice with SoundExchange by January 31 to continue to be covered by those settlement agreements.   These agreements were entered into by groups of webcasters and SoundExchange, and allow the webcasters to pay royalties at rates lower than those rates set by the Copyright Royalty Board for 2006-2010.  January 31 is an… [read post]

Giant Flywheel Any marketing or advertising program should have one goal in mind, bringing in more clients and revenue for the firm. However, I think some lawyers are getting confused about the difference between investing in advertising vs. investing in marketing for their firm. While both are important strategies, the approach, expectations, and the amount of time each takes to see results are different. Let me explain. Perhaps I should start with my definition of each so that we are speaking… [read post]
